Paper Abstract

A new technique for remote alignment of an adaptive optics system with far-field optimization is proposed. The Simplex function optimization algorithm is considered to be the most robust and efficient of several hill-climbing algorithms tried in aligning an experimental brassboard with multiple adaptive optics elements. The algorithm achieves the function minimum or near minimum. The robustness of the algorithm is verified by experimental results and corresponding simulations.
